Could a possible fix be to run a test zone-fill (that doesn't actually get applied) and test if the zone is different from the current zone?

That change was not intentional. I didn't expect to have the ability to change status, and as I'm new to launchpad, I thought it'd take me to a fix that had been committed, sorry.

Mikkel, actually this is the the current behavior. If a zone is not update you will get a notification when you launch DRC (5.0 and up).

We now check against the zone outline for unfilled zones, and the fill polygons for filled (but possibly out-of-date) zones.

Hi Jeff,

Could you please take a look at this pcb which I put in attachment?
The problem is that DRC does not detect obvious violation between track and zone at x=185.6486 y=99.39 (U1-pin14).

Many thanks,

Thanks to the kindness of Sir Jean-Pierre Charras the issue seems to be solved by his commit 90178eb681.
